A Portrait Case Study-1 (Step-1 and Step-2 Girl) How To Draw Using A Grid
This is my first realistic portrait case study that I am going to show you so that you will learn how to draw your own with my step by step video tutorial from start to finish. The first part to create this portrait from a photo using charcoal is to show you how to draw using a grid.
The first thing to do to sketch the face of the person to a paper is to make vertical and horizontal grid lines. You will get more instructions as you watch the videos below. Most of the time drawing a portrait is to enlarge the face in the picture when you transfer it in paper or illustration board.
Inside this video you will see me using a grid system or worksheet to capture the likeness of the image that I am working on. You will see in these series of videos my steps in drawing portraits with charcoal and pencil using dry brush. Watching this is even more than just reading a pencil portrait book.
After you watch the two videos below you may click these links to continue learning. I invite you to click and view them here: Step-3 Girl, Step-4 Girl, Step-5 Girl, Step-6 Girl which will help you learn how to sketch the portrait and get exact likeness of the photo. I will show you different pictures and faces of persons that I will be working on in the future. Basically you will learn how to draw pencil and charcoal portraits from photographs.
I invite you to keep an eye on these video tutorials so that you will learn exactly what I did. Below are the first videos of this series. I encourage you to get a pencil and paper to take notes.
